The Jacksonville Jaguars (3-2) are traveling to play the Dallas Cowboys (2-3) today in a game that has almost become a must-win for both teams.

Before the game begins, we wanted to ask the Big Cat Country team (and you!) a simple question:

“How will the Jaguars do against the Cowboys today?”

Alfie Crow (@AlfieBCC)

The Jaguars should be the Cowboys on Sunday and honestly it shouldn’t really be close. No one but Ezekiel Elliott on the Cowboys scares you, so the Jaguars should be able to key on stopping him and shut the rest down. Depending on which Jaguars offense shows up, they could win big.

This game (like every game quarterbacked by Blake Bortles) go either way. It could be a three-score win for the Jaguars, a close loss, a nail-biter that the Cowboys win by a field goal... I think the offense does just enough and the defense shuts down Dallas.

The narrative all week has been how endangered the offense is with the rash of injuries, so in true Jaguars/Bortles fashion, they’ll have an offensive explosion. The defense gets a touchdown off a turnover as well.

It’s bounce-back season! While the Dallas Cowboys actually have a good defense, Blake Bortles generally performs well following a poor game, and the Jaguars have rarely dropped two straight games under Doug Marrone. The Cowboys have struggled offensively, especially in the passing game. Jacksonville’s No. 1 ranked passing defense should make life difficult for Dak Prescott and the Cowboys’ 30th-ranked passing offense all game long. It just doesn’t seem like a favorable matchup for Dallas, and so long as Jacksonville can avoid turning the ball over on offense and contain Zeke Elliott on defense, the Jaguars should earn a road victory.

So it’s “Good Blake Week” right? I just don’t know anymore. What I need is for the defense to play elite. Isn’t this the matchup for that? Am I only going to ask questions?

My bold prediction: Elliot is shut down and the Cowboys are held under 10 points.

Jaguars win 17-6

“Good teams don’t lose two games in a row.” — Calais Campbell

Good teams may not, but injured teams certainly can. Were it not for some injuries especially along the Jaguars offensive line, this game would be a slam dunk for the Jaguars. With that being said, the Texans awful offensive tackles held their own for the most part against the Cowboys, and Kendall Lamm at right tackle especially did enough to keep Demarcus Lawrence from doing too much damage. If the Texans line can hold up....

Jaguars win 23-10
